Was approved by hiring committee (L5) for software engineer in machine learning (ML SWE) in NYC office. I was told that Maps, Google Research, and Research and Machine Intelligence are some of the teams in NYC.

What other ML teams exist at NYC and how is headcount, in general, at the NYC office? Is it hard to get matched with machine learning roles even after passing the ML SWE interview loop?

    just be careful that a lot of ML roles in google are bs. they call it ml just as a marketing scam to increase their candidate pool. "maps" in particular is a joke; avoid them unless you do not have any other option.

      Was the interview coding & system design focused? For ML were you asked maths, statistics, deep learning problems?

      2 ML questions, 2 coding questions, 1 behavioral. For ML, it seemed like anything was fair game (probability theory, deep learning, pipelines).
